split between defense and domestic spending. and so what you're going to see in september is a real fight over that. democrats in the budget have presented. we don't respect. are going to have a grand bargain in september. republicans said we already have a grand bargain. that would be enough to make it difficult, but then you have libertarian, republican party. pass spending bills unless obamacare is defunded another dime goes to funding it. that is huge. that is another one. you're going to seek abortion arguments. so this is -- it's going to be a dramatic nine days. it is a congress that has not functioned well for some people would say even at all, but my own sense is that republicans are leading loud and clear. if they shut down the government again it is going to be something like what happened to newt gingrich in 1995. republicans have newly taken over the house. it provoked a crisis with president clinton and the government shut down twice. and in the and republicans are blamed. the next election. republicans would actually -- let think there will do everything possible to a
